Firefox Add-ons For Easier and Happier Web Life
Firefox is highly configurable and there are lots add-ons for it. I compile a list of the add-ons that make my life easier and happier.
“A customizable mouse gestures extension which enables to execute various commands and user scripts with five types of gestures.”
“Annoyed by adverts? Troubled by tracking? Bothered by banners? Install Adblock Plus now to regain control of the internet and change the way that you view the web.”
“Never be annoyed by a Flash animation again! Blocks Flash so it won’t get in your way, but if you want to see it, just click on…”
“FoxyProxy is an advanced proxy management tool that completely replaces Firefox’s limited proxying capabilities. It offers more features than SwitchProxy, ProxyButton, QuickProxy, xyzproxy, ProxyTex, TorButton, etc.”
“Pretty simple and sexy screen capturing tool”
I list some add-ons that I ever used but not using now.
Google Toolbar: I use it to check the site’s PageRank (PR) and bookmark my favourite site to Google bookmark. Hide Menubar: Hide the menubar which are not used most of the time.
or Compact Menu 2: Duplicates the menubar on the toolbar
The newer version of Firefox can do this natively.
